Oh Good, An “L Train Groper” To Look Out For

there's an l train groper to look out for

We may have finally won the battle against unwanted subway grinding, which was just made illegal last month (!!), but the war against pervs and monsters is a long one, and police are now looking for a man who forcibly and “repeatedly” groped a woman on the L train.

The 28-year-old victim managed to snap the above photo of the man after the incident, which happened last week around rush hour, and police describe him as “40-50 years old, 5’5″-5’6″, and 200 lbs, with a mustache. He was last seen wearing a black and gray baseball cap, and a grey hooded sweater,” writes Gothamist.

Anyone with information can submit tips to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or even text them to 274637 (CRIMES), with code TIP577. A reminder, unfortunately, to look out for yourselves and each other on the commute (or anywhere, really), and probably a good time to draw inspiration from one of the city’s all-time great subway heroes:
